Begin with the yarn tail to the left and the working yarn to the right.
Make a loop like this...
Insert your hook through the loop, from front to back, catch the working yarn and pull a loop through to the front.
Ta Da, now you are ready to work the first round. Work over the yarn tail as you go.
When the first round is complete, tug on the yarn tail to pull the loop closed.
When you've finished your motif, make sure to sew the yarn tail in securely to stop the Magic Loop from loosening up.

I'm desperate to go out and walk in the woods, the bluebells are out and the trees are decked in new, bright green leaves. The weather this morning is rubbish (heavy drizzle) so I'm doing a bit of crochet in the hopes that it will be brighter later. I'm not sure what I'm making. Is it a baby blanket or what?
I've made little squares in baby colors and then stuffed them with a clump of poly stuffing. Now, I'm joining the puff squares together, so we'll see what it becomes.

I've made another starburst blanket for Cumbrian Country Crafts. I love the colours in this one, really pretty!
One day I'll make one for myself in these colours!
Have a great weekend and Happy Hooking!

Its a twin (single) sized blanket, edged and joined in olive. Made for Cumbrian Country Crafts.
Oh, crochet is so much quicker than knitting!
